The perfect match for the 3000-series speaker system, the Q Acoustics 3090C is an impressive centre speaker.

Award-winning predecessors

The Q Acoustics 2000-Series was one of the most widely praised speaker ranges of its time. Having picked up numerous awards throughout its life, it's fair to stay that the range was something of a standard setter. With revisions to every aspect of an assured design, the 3000-Series is set to take the market by storm. The 3090C has the same drive units as used in the 3010, so perfect tonal balance can be achieved when used in a 5.1 home cinema system.

Superior sound quality
At the heart of the 3090C are new speaker units for an even more impressive sound. As with the other 3000-Series speakers, the new Ring Dome tweeter provides a more accurate response for the precise reproduction of subtle aspects of both music and speech. The tweeter unit is also decoupled from the rest of the cabinet, so it's not affected by vibration from the bass units, while the new Aramid Fibre/Paper woofer cones are light and rigid to give the 3090C its natural vocal reproduction.

Improved cabinets too
With revised cabinet bracing, the distinctive Q Acoustics cabinets have been made even better. With reduced cabinet resonance, the sound becomes less coloured and truer to its sound in the studio or concert venue. At the rear of the cabinet you'll find a bass reflex port with supplied bung. This can be inserted or removed depending on the speaker's closeness to a rear wall.

New range of finishes
Still distinctively designed with signature rounded cabinets, the new 3000-Series is available in a broader range of finishes than ever. Choose between Matt Graphite, Black Leather Effect or Black Lacquer for a technical look to blend well with your other AV components. Alternatively, White Lacquer looks great in modern interiors. Finally, the American Walnut vinyl finish is the ideal complement for both antique and traditional furniture.

One of the most stylish centre speakers in its class that also just happens to be amongst the best-sounding; the 3090C is a talented all-rounder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely great sound, as centre for cinema room I bought this to compliment two 3010i for my cinema room front sound and dialogue, the improvement from the plastic sattelite speakers is just awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clarity with balance This center speaker is part of the 3010 5:1 home cinema package. On films and tv broadcast with a Dolby soundtrack the voices of actors are clear and precise. The speaker has two cones and provides a substantial boost to dialogue when used in the appropriate mode by a home cinema receiver. I wish I had bought a home cinema package years ago. It's brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound, great looks, awesome value I bought this 2 weeks ago. It works between 4 x 3010 bookshelf speakers and my old YST 320 thumper. Driven by a Pioneer VSX923. Speech and dialogue are crystal clear and well defined. It’s a perfect match for the 3010s. Graphite looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade from TV speakers Building up my surround sound again after moving house and realising previous satellites wouldn’t cut it. This was the first component to be followed shortly by 3050 floorstanders and 3010 surrounds. Obviously won’t be able able to appreciate the full effect Of this centre channel until I’ve added the rest but as a stand-alone it is a fantastic upgrade on the basic internal TV speakers. Crisp clear dialogue even at lower volumes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality sound The quality of the Q Acoustics 3090 is what led me to getting the 3020s for my front surrounds. I was going to get a Tannoy eclipse but was advised that the 3090 would be a better choice. I'm so glad I took the excellent advice from the RS staff. Dialogue when watching movies is clear and concise without having to crank the volume up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sounding speaker I purchased this 2 weeks ago as I am in the process of building a 7.1 system. I have been using it every day, lovely clear vocals and complements the other speakers nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound for a great price I have been slowly upgrading my home cinema speakers, added this as my new centre speaker. It is a big improvement over the old one, speech is super clear, and it really adds to the whole movie experience! The really well made and looks great in my set up. Really fast delivery as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speaker I bought this to replace a yamaha centre speaker. It is huge, about the same width and height as an average amplifier and that's why I bought it. Sounds is really clear and after some adjustment settled in well with the rest of the sound system. It was noticeably louder than my yamaha. Just need to replace the rest now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound, Unbeatable Value! Bought this as a replacement for a diminutive centre speaker in my cinema surround sound setup where the dialogue was difficult to make out on some movies. The Q Acoustices 3090C has now vastly improved matters, particularly when listening to the lower frequency tones of the male voice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completed the set. The 3090C slotted perfectly in to my IKEA TV stand, completing a 5.1 setup. Really enjoying the loud and crystal clear sounds. Working very well with my current a/v receiver. I'm a very happy customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant centre speaker for the price! I bought this speaker to go with a pair of 3020s to upgrade my home cinema system. All I have to say is wow, but that wouldn't be much of a review at all. The 3090c is a pretty big speaker, but not so big that it is overwhelming. (I wrote this in my review of the 3020s on here earlier - see that one if you want my 2 cents worth). The speaker looks great on my stand and just fits under my wall mounted 55" Philips Ambilight TV with space for my PSVR camera. Be mindful of this if you are placing this speaker on a stand where the TV is on its built in stand - I dont think it would fit at all! The black colour fits in well with my decor and the magnetic grille is brilliant. Be wary that if you dust, the speaker grille will grab the fuzzies off the dusting rag and it can be a challenge to get them off, I discovered this yesterday while doing my housework. As for sound, I am impressed. The dialogue is clear and understandable, with a wide but mono (?) sound field. I am upgrding from a small Onkyo HTS set so this is a huge improvement. I don't really run music through this speaker unless I am listening to a DSP processed sound field from my Onkyo TX-NR609. For this the speaker is fine, but it's not made for music but more for films. In films, this is a great speaker. When I ran Audyssey room calibration, the speaker was detected as THX compatible as well as the 3020s and the cutoff frequency was set to 90 (or 60?) Hz. I am running this speaker on 16g speaker wire. It is recommended that you bung up the back bass reflex ports, but I haven't done so and it sounds fine to me. I run this with 2 powered subs and though I havent tested the full low end capabilities of this centre on its own, I am assured it will be the same or similar to my 3020s which do pump out good low end frequencies, though the woofers are a wee bit smaller on the 3090C. The AVR is putting out probably 75wpc when the centre is engaged and it sound loud and clear with no distortion at higher volume levels (though I could still go louder). Overall, I am quite impressed with this speaker and the Q Acoustic 3.0 system I am running. Tonally matched, sound great and what a bargain price for the quality and reviews I have read. You could do better but I think you'd be hard pressed to bother to do so. For my needs and budget, these fit the bill perfectly. They look great as well. I am considering running 3010s for my height (Atmos) and rear surround, but they are pretty big for my space. If you have the space I would say go for a pair of the 3020's, 3090C and 3010's and perhaps a different make for a subwoofer (or 2). Not that the Q A's sub is bad, but you could get the Wharfedale Diamond SW150 at a great price and be a very happy camper indeed. Any questions, please ask, I am happy to post more pics if requested. Any questions? Please ask. Pics follow...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to 3050 floorstanders Added this after purchasing two pairs of floorstanders 3050's. It's much better than previous centre speakers I'be had and also looks the part too! Really adds to the dialogue of movies etc but would recommend using Ct width or centre spread to widen the front sound field and avoid a mono feeling speech.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly surprised I had this centre speaker on back order, as it was out of stock when I was creating Dream home cinema, I wasn't completely aware of the size of the bar, in my experience they are small and flat, not this one, this is a massive sturdy unit and it has alot of weight to it, it really is very well constructed and feels like it is made to last, I couldn't be more pleased. Before we speak about the sound I would just like to talk about the little circular pads at the bottom of the unit, you are supposed to pop them in then turn them to finishing the fitting, this is rather tricky and seems a tad unnecessary once you finally get them on do not drag the speaker while they are touching the surface that they are installed on, or else they just pop back about again, it's rather annoying but only a small gripe. Which can be completely overlooked by out of this world clarity and performance of this monster, everything sounds perfect, the only thing I can complain about is the fact that I have nothing to complain about, not a single thing, this sound bar alot with the other speakers in the range i.e the 3050 is a match made in heaven by audio angels. Who am I to question? Clear concise good volume, finally made home cinema faultlessly complete. Q accoustics I am overly impressed. Keep on rocking in the free world

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I want the rest of the set now... Bought this to replace an aging set of Celestion AVS301s and what a difference it has made. I now know what I've been missing out on...clear dialogue. Fantastic sound quality and easily better than the Mission centre speaker I had prior to the Celestion set. I'd researched beforehand so it was just a case of dropping in and picking up; usual friendly and efficient service from the MK staff.
